    Initially it was scheduled for tomorrow, but at the end of last week we ran into some issues, which we've managed to resolve now. 
    It will still take some time for the update to make it to the stores, so it won't quite hit tomorrow, but hopefully it'll be there by either Wednesday or Thursday.

    They are trying hardly to free the update before the challenge. And if they aren’t sure to reach this schedule, I guess they are working under a lot pressure. 
    Let’s him work. It’s not a matter of life and death. This week, next week, it’s the same.

    So @Fluxxx

    If you reroll a bonus condition for badge X, are the previous 10 results restricted only for badge X? Or for badges Y, Z, etc also? 

    Meaning does each independent badge have its own "memory" or is it just a generic 10 trait memory for bonuses for all badge rerolls on traits?

    Badges are independent of each other, so in your example, when rerolling Badge X only the previous results from that badge are restricted. Badge Y rerolls are then completely independent of Badge X.

    Is it safe to start the challenge, or should we wait until the app is updated?

    EDIT: I sure hope so because I did start.

    I take it back. Blackmarket is not what I was expecting. It’s just a gold exchange, which is fine and needed but thought there would be more, regular trades too.

    I just traded warrior tokens to bruiser tokens, so it's good it's not only gold.

    I'm quite happy with the amount of tools in nightmare distance, assuming we can complete it there should be a steady supply per week without gold. I counted 1 gore, 1 grenade, 2 flare and 2 medkits this week - not too shabby!

    I was sad to see tools for gold in the black market though, I was offered 2 flare and 2 blast grenades and it looks like my shops will all reset again today. Add that to the 8 we get per week from the TG shop, the 7 from dailies and the 6 (technically 12 with a reset) from the distance! The game and GW especially will soon be tool spam city but at least a fair chunk more are available for F2Pers so it's not all pay to win.

    120 hero tokens for 60 mins gas is pretty handy though, especially when they're Sniper Morgan! All in all, you can see elements of a cash grab but at least there is stuff for free.

    Will the Blackmarket logo disappear?

    The screen is already crowded enough.

    And I´d like to see more swap options too. It´s mainly gold and I rather won´t use it, except the gold prices drop or the droprate rises.

    @WellyLuga Nice work! how did you feel about Nightmare mode? Too easy for you perhaps? :)

    I enjoyed it, I think because the maps were basically exactly the same only with bumped levels it wasn't too difficult. They're maps I've been playing over and over for years so there weren't too many curve balls. I think if the objectives/walker placements were changed I might have struggled a little more. Motorpool with 3 level 52 tanks was a bit daunting at first but fire does the same damage at that level as it does at lower levels and level 52 scouts pack a tasty punch to help you out! Similarly, level 50 freemen are obviously harder than level 40 freemen but then you instead have level 50 walkers to help you kill them.

    The rewards were quite impressive though, for tools/reinforce/rerolls especially and it does breathe new life into a stale gamemode. I hadn't played it at all for weeks until today. I think there could be more badge fragments though, we use the lower rarity ones to cycle through the sequences and there are only 4 epic frags in the nightmare mode but I guess most players who will be tackling it won't really be thinking of their badges.  I think there won't be too long a wait until someone clears it without a loss, if they haven't done already :smile:

    @FluxxxTell us will we see a reverse exchange? A gold fragment costs 350 gold, and if I sell a gold fragment to Jerry and he gives me a garnet or 150 gold for example ) ?

    @Fluxxx to nit pick I was very upset that a legendary frag is advertised as a reward and not offered in the nightmare mode. 

    If it will be offered sometimes that’s okay, but if it’s never offered then it probably should be removed. It’s very much a bummer to see that. I might do the distance I haven’t made up my mind but I’m not much of a player beyond big events.

    So what is with this unbalanced tool spread-out? Everyone gets different tools all day long with Black Market and Daily Quests? What if like 2 specific tools are better than others and a different player recieves like more of these "better" tools? This is not balanced in my opinion.

    All the gold you need now to not miss out on tools in Black Market and Monday reset .. even more p2w than it was already this is getting worse and worse..

    It's much better this way. You can trade 2 components for a fragment in the black market, but the component events should have gotten us all excess legendary components so unless they remove the component events I won't ever have to.

    So sad I'm missing out on my daily quest dose of 8 Jerry or 12 negan tokens and instead stuck with these free tools instead...

    You can just skip those, or you can do season missions for 1 gas each

    Not, if you have to do challenge missions.
